You know it has been one of those weeks when I only manage ONE post here all week long. I think that is an all time low since I started iLearn Technology in 2007. Just wow. Between starting a school and working out details for the Learning Genome it has been a busy week where I feel like life is moving at turtle speed. Let’s get these shows on the road already! This is just a post to let you know that more useful tech tools WILL be coming your way, it just may take me a 3 day weekend to get back on top of life. In the mean time…if you aren’t yet part of an online personal learning network, I can’t SHOUT it enough- you need one. All you have to do is sign up for Twitter, engage in conversation with other educators from around the world and BAM- your own personal learning network is born. It is brilliant, I can’t tell you how much I learn from my PLN every day. This week was particularly wonderful because I got to follow all the happenings of the ISTE conference. Even though I couldn’t be there, I could keep up with all the fun and learning. If you are so inclined to jump into Twitter and give it a try, be sure to drop me a hello (@ktenkely). I haven’t been great about tracking new followers lately but I always respond to @messages. A ginormous thank you to all of you who wished me a happy birthday yesterday on Twitter, Facebook or by helping with this custom birthday present. Tears when I saw this beauty. Thank you! Today I entered the Learning Genome (if you don’t know what in the world that is, feel free to click here and learn about it) in a grant contest to raise some funds. I would be grateful if you could vote and help spread the word like crazy. It is easy, just click the banner below To all my friends in the US, Happy Independence Day!
